Great bottle

Pros: light, durable, easy to keep clean

Cons: none

I love my Klean Kanteen. I'm somewhat afraid to write a review of it because of the general obsession people have with making sure there is absolutely-absolutely nothing-nothing even remotely toxic anywhere in any miniscule part of the bottle. 

It's a stainless steel bottle. The cap is stainless steel. Yes, the outside of the cap is plastic, and there is a slim o-ring that makes a seal on the inside. Are there meta-flouro-parabens in any of that? I don't know. I don't really care. I probably get more plastic toxicity from one Peet's coffee plastic lid than I will from drinking out of this canteen for the rest of my life. 

I mean, yeesh. Everywhere I go the building has a sign up saying "This area contains chemicals known by the state of California to cause cancer" and I'm going to worry whether the o-ring on my water bottle is leeching 0.00000000000000000000000002 parts per million of plastic into my water? Maybe if I were planning to live forever.

Sorry. This thing is well made. And it's way better than drinking out of a plastic bottle. I don't really need to know any more than that.
